James T. Kirk': You left spacedock without a tractor beam?
John Harriman: It won't be installed until Tuesday.

Pavel Chekov: How big is your medical staff?
John Harriman: The medical staff... doesn't arrive till Tuesday.
Pavel Chekov: [speaks Russian, then points to two members of the onboard news crew] You and you, you've just become nurses. Let's go.

John Harriman: Captain Kirk, I would appreciate any suggestions you might have.
James T. Kirk: First, move us within transporter range, beam those people aboard the Enterprise.
John Harriman: What about the gravimetric distortions? They'll tear us apart.
James T. Kirk: Risk is part of the game if you want to sit in that chair.
John Harriman: Helm, close to within transporter range.
James T. Kirk: Second, [to reporter] turn that damned thing off.

William Riker: "We the officers and crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, being of sound mind and judgement, hereby make the following charges against Lieutenant Worf. One, that he did knowingly and willfully perform above and beyond the call of duty on countless occasions. Two--most seriously-- that he has earned the admiration and respect of the entire crew."
Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf, I hereby promote you to the rank of Lieutenant Commander with all the rights and priviledges thereto. And may God have mercy on your soul.

Jean-Luc Picard: If there's one thing I've learned over the years, it's never underestimate a Klingon.
William Riker: Computer, remove the plank!
[Worf falls into the ocean]
Jean-Luc Picard: Number One, that's "retract plank," not "remove plank."
William Riker: Of course, sir. [leans over the side toward Worf] Sorry!

[Data is laughing.]
Data: I get it!
Geordi La Forge: You get what?
Data: When you said to Commander Riker, "The clown can stay, but the Ferengi in the gorilla suit has to go." Ha ha ha!
Geordi La Forge: What are you talking about?
Data: During the Farpoint mission. We were on the bridge. You told a joke. That was the punch line.
Geordi La Forge: The Farpoint-- Data, that was seven years ago.
Data: I know. I just got it. Ha ha ha! Very funny.

Geordi La Forge: Data, come take a look at this, will you? Have you ever seen a solar probe with this kind of configuration?
Data: [uses his tricorder as a hand puppet] No, Geordi, I have not. Have you? [to his tricorder] No, I have not. It is most unusual. [laughs] Mister Tricorder!

[Data attenuates the axial servo in his arm to open a magnetically sealed door.]
Data: Open sesame! (turns to Geordi La Forge) You could say... I have a magnetic personality. Ha ha ha!

Tolian Soran: Have you ever considered a prosthesis that would make you look a little more... how can I say... more normal?
Geordi La Forge: What's normal?
Tolian Soran: What's normal? Well, that's a good question. Normal is what everyone else is and you are not.

Tolian Soran: Welcome, Captain. You must think I'm quite the madman, hmm?
Jean-Luc Picard: The thought had crossed my mind.

Jean-Luc Picard: What you're about to do, Soran, is no different from when the Borg destroyed your world. They killed millions, too, including your wife... your children.
Tolian Soran: [smiles] Nice try. You know there, was a time when I wouldn't hurt a fly. Then the Borg came, and they showed me that if there is one constant in this whole universe, it's death. Afterwards, I began to realize that it didn't really matter. We're all going to die sometime. It's just a question of how and when. You will, too, Captain. Aren't you beginning to fell time gaining on you? It's like a predator. It's stalking you. Oh, you can try and outrun it with doctor, medicines, new technologies, but in the end, time is going to hunt you down and make the kill.
Jean-Luc Picard: It's our mortality that defines us, Soran. It's part of the truth of our existence.
Tolian Soran: What if I told you I found a new truth?
Jean-Luc Picard: The nexus?
Tolian Soran: Time has no meaning there. The predator has no teeth.

[The Duras sisters spy on Geordi]
Lursa: Where is he [La Forge] now?
B'Etor: I don't know. He bathed. Now he's roaming the ship. He must be the only engineer in Starfleet who doesn't go to Engineering.

William Riker: Data, the sensors can't penetrate the planet's ionosphere. There's too much interference. Can you find a way to scan for life forms?
Data: I would be happy to, sir. I just love scanning for life forms. [begins singing and playing tune on console] Life forms, You tiny little life forms, You precious little life forms, Where are you?

Tolian Soran: Now, you'll have to excuse me, Captain. I have an appointment with eternity, and I don't want to be late.

James T. Kirk: You say history considers me dead. Who am I to argue with history?
Jean-Luc Picard: You're a Starfleet officer. You have a duty.
James T. Kirk: I don't need to be lectured by you. I was out saving the galaxy when your grandfather was in diapers. I'd say the galaxy owes me one.
